And if you do decide to venture out on one of those wintry and woebegone nights – make it Saturday 19th December and get down to Sophie Parkin’s private members club in East London. Meet the elusive HP Tinker in person and hear me read from Burrito Deluxe and Ridgwell stories for the 1st time ever in the Capital. See link for details –
